as you need to explain it all in wednesday night's debate. >> mitt romney needs a great october. >> we know romney needs a great october. >> to change the course of this campaign. >> the final push is on. >> just days away from the first presidential debate. >> both candidates cramming for the first debate. >> everyone trying to lower expectations. >> franticly spinning to lower expectations. >> president obama is an experienced debatetor. >> i'm just okay. >> almost everyone seems to be muting enthusiasm in trying to undersell thvernlths is mitt's first time. >> i don't buy that. >> chris christie is taking a different tack. >> we have a candidate who is going to do extraordinary well on wednesday night. come thursday morning when we get to thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> this is mitt's first time. >> are you stupid? >> overselling with gus tow. >> chris christie said the next day will be romney's time to shine. >> don't expect any zingers. >> governor romney is getting by on a zing and prayer. >> i don't know that zingers necessarily turn it
about the debate. that they're expecting way too much of mitt romney. but this being bill o'reilly, he ended up putting even more pressure on romney. >> i think the expectations for the debate are too high. particularly conservative republican americans are expecting mitt romney to go out there and do something and i don't know whether that as even possible right now. the first debate means everything. the whole world is watching this thing. this is a big, big debate on wednesday night. this is much bigger than the mccain-obama debate. >> today mitt romney traveled from boston to colorado where the debate will be held as a major player in romney's fund raiser confirmed to fox business that a few new york donors have backed away from financial commitments to the romney campaign and instead said they will spend their money to help the republicans hold on to the house of represents and pick up seats in the senate. the debates will be very important, said one person with knowledge of the matter. if romney does well, that money could come back. >>> new jersey's governor, chris christie the
since world war ii under this policy. >> another key debate topic, healthcare. romney is defensive about his massachusetts plan. today, the obama camp charged the promise to repeal the president's law will knock millions off the insurance. republicans are circulating a secretly recorded video of a recent meeting among local government officials here in henderson where the president is doing debate prep. officials discuss how implementing the president's law will cost city employees an extra $40 a month. >> a challenge beyond belief. >> in exclusive interview with fox in nevada, senator marco rubio says the video shows the issue will blow up on the president. >> that's the tip of the iceberg. if we have four more years of obama, if obamacare is not repealed we'll have story after story of that one. >> senator rubio is here shadowing the president. he told me he agrees with governor chris christie that romney is a strong debate torso they're still not low -- strong debater, so they are still not lowering the expectation. the message is simple: the country can't afford four more months, let
that developed. >> the debate is built entirely around foreign policy. if romney doesn't take advantage of that platform to raise questions, again, poke holes in the president's arguments -- >> greta: why isn't he now? this is coming from the super pac. >> i think the romney campaign thinks it can wait that long, at least some people in the romney campaign, think it can wait, and want to do his foreign policy right before that debate, so there's some bringing together of these arguments. i think the time is now. you had governor romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know, how has the administration handled it? he said, look, it's too early to judge it. that's not the right answer. they've handled it incorrectly. basically everybody across the political spectrum thinks they've handled it incorrectly. i wouldn't leave it to the super pacs to do my work for me. this is exactly the type of ads that conservatives are looking for. >> it appears the romney campaign got brushed back because of the criticism. >> greta: you mean they got gun-shy? >> exactly. as the folks began to sh
take off. >> steve: i hate when that happens. one day until the presidential debate and mitt romney gets in this last minute dig . >> i will make sure we get resources in alaska and by the way, i will get pipe line from canada if i have to build it myself. >> steve: will lines like that work in the debate tomorrow night? it may depend on president obama's achilles hill. >> brian: unlike me he can build something because he knows how to work a ratchet gun. military faces lay offs. it is our money. "fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ note ♪ "fox and friends". >> steve: welcome back to studio e live from midtown manhattan and brian welcome back. >> brian: you want to feel old in >> steve: sure. when i started here my son was six months old and yesterday was his 16th birth >> gretchen: does he have his driver's license. >> brian: he has his her mitt. >> steve: you started with me, you got old. remember when sally came to the studio in a stroller. she is a sophmore in smu in dallas, texas. >> brian: i am excited about the pregame show to debate number one. >> gretchen: we have a
looking at tonight? >> mitt romney floats and idea to cap keyductions across the board. we set up our own debate. those are the topics we are going to tackle. and this evening. listen to vice president joe biden on the trail. it is the gift that keeps on giving. >> how they can justify. raising taxes in the middle class. it has been buried in the last four years. how in the lord's name. >> that is nodt a froidian slip. plus three stories that happen to break before the election. a leftist new york attorneyy general looking to bash banks and that is as phony as a $3 bill. also a judge strikes down pennsylvania's voter id law and the obama administration is telling companies it is okay to disregard the law when it comes to handing out pink slips in advance to big budget cuts. all three happening before the election. mitt romney has finally put meat on the bones of his tax reform idea. he floated the idea of a $17,000 cap on tax reform reduction. >> you could say everyone is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. you can fill that bucket if you will and higher income people might have a low
the challenge mitt romney faces against president obama, the clearest shift from the debates came in the 2000 race pitting governor george w. bush of texas against vice president al gore. it resulted from a rare combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they we
and tomorrow. republican challenger mitt romney is getting ready for the presidential debate. they are practicing in henderson nevada while mitt romney practices in denver. you will be able to watch that beginning at 6:00 tomorrow evening. >>> concern is growing for a saratoga man missing for two weeks. jeanine della vega just spoke with police for an update, jeanine? >> reporter: pam, i just got off the phone with police and they don't have too much information and they are hoping for any tips that will help lead them to eric garcia. we are told by family and friends he has a heart condition and he is without medication so tonight we have planned a vigil to take place at sacred heart church. let's go to a picture from saratoga go. he was last seen in the area of good year streets. he was attending a party and told his friends before midnight he would be right back and left on his harley davidson motorcycle. he has not been seen since. he is 350 pounds, has short brown hair and goatee. he has a tattoo on the back of his head with a harley davidson symbol. they are trying to g
and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your prescription, pardon the expression. >> guest: well, i oversaw the reform of medicaid in new mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, we set up better health care networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal gov
debates, we have a chance for mitt romney to set a different impression with the american people than he's been able to do so far. who knows what president obama will do and what events are happening in the world. but i'm not sure other than some tightening from a little surge that obama had which i think is receding a little bit, i'm not sure what nate is talking about. >> john, you wrote a column that talks about the debates and the impact of the debates traditionally. and made the case that traditionally it makes very little impact. >> there are many individual moments that make an impression. but to fundamentally change where a race is going is very rare and you need a combination of events. the example that i used in that piece, andrew, was 2000, al gore had a lead of about what president obama has now entering the debates against george w. bush. he had a reputation as a strong debater. his body language was off, he was condescending to bush. bush was surprisingly well performed and personable. you had the bush campaign take advantage of some mistakes that gore made in the debate. a
when he gets on that debate stage in denver, is go off the president not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i do
